Web control system specialist Montalvo launches new video demonstrating load cell sensitivity

December 15, 2013 - 14:35

GORHAM, ME, Dec. 14, 2013 (Press Release) -The Montalvo Corporation, international specialists in industrial web control systems, has produced a short four-minute video demonstrating load cell sensitivity.

This particular video can be on the Montalvo web site at: http://bit.ly/19kTjLN. (please note that the third from last letter is a lower-case "j" ("jay")

The video discusses the two major factors in selecting load cells: sensitivity and repeatability. Bryon Williams of The Montalvo Corporation explains both factors by using just a five-gram weight to demonstrate how a very small tension on the Montalvo ES load cell is sensed and signaled. Standard load ratings for the ES series load cells include 50, 150 and 500 pounds.

As Williams says, "The Montalvo load cell is sensitive to the very smallest changes in tension and it still offers a repeatable signal with the customer's webs."

President Ed Montalvo says, "The ES Series load cells are capable of detecting a wider range of tension changes and thus feature standard load ratings that are effective for a majority of applications." He adds that load cell delivery can be made in just one week.

The ES load cells have a stainless steel body, are dust proof (IP-54 rating), and offer unique mechanical variance compensation. They are available in three mounting configurations: standard, flange, and split pillow block.

More detail on load cell sensitivity, including technical articles, can be found on the Montalvo website at www.montalvo.com.
